Insurance, Ethics, and a Swamp Creature (with Video)

There’s a good video getting insurance straight and outing one of our most reprehensible politicians (as he plays a wise teacher to sell his hypocrisy):

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “AWKWARD: Paul Ryan Doesn’t Understand How Insurance Even Works”)

Now follows my angry rant with a bleeped word in it, because I just couldn’t contain myself in the face of someone so disgusting and utterly unworthy to live within the human covenant, leave alone living the rich life at our expense: Continue reading

Meet One of Our Lovely Extortionist Plutocrats

It’s not a million things going wrong in our economy, it’s only one – and it’s a pretty basic one. A small handful of people are hoarding all the resources and money for themselves. If we can prevent them from behaving so selfishly with our resources and redistribute their unimaginably large stashes of wealth (primarily in non-taxable offshore accounts) back into our economy, things would improve immeasurably…

Great Rant on Trump’s Muslim Ban, Airport Protests, and Who Are We as Americans?

Basically, whenever you lump people together on the basis of one shared but very vague characteristic, great injustices and utterly idiotic consequences result from it.

Also, it doesn’t behoove us to forget that we are and always have been an immigrant nation and aspired to be the land of the free. All the more reason to act smart, not dumb.

Here is Cenk Uygur’s spirited rant, well worth watching (although I myself don’t quite agree with his Hillary-Trump comparison; I see them as different on some points, sometimes better sometimes worse, but equally bad on most):

Three Wishes for Trump

New Mr. President, can we have three wishes? How about investigating 911 and all living former presidents for crimes of corruption (including the Clinton Foundation)? How about putting powerful controls on the CIA without getting yourself assassinated? How about investigating and fighting all forms of election rigging and theft in the U.S. (including the gerrymandering and the “Interstate Voter Registration Crosscheck” program which helped you become president, plus the theft of the primaries from Bernie Sanders)? Are these still only three wishes, or did I go over the maximum already? Continue reading
